A Lenten Collect to Not Become Entrenched in Old Ways

Spirit of God, who guides us through wilderness, keep us from becoming entrenched in what was before, unable to grow and change and become new, that we would follow you into new ways and new places and see the things you will transform from death into life, through Jesus Christ our Lord, upon whom you lit as a dove as a symbol of the Father’s joy and presence and with whom you and the Father reign forever. Amen. ‘Do not remember the former things, or consider the things of old. I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.’
